PK94324: Javascript injection vulnerability in JavaScript Resource Servle t

Subscribe

You can track all active APARs for this component.

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • The JavaScript Resource Servlet does not perform input validatio
    n and so a malicious user could inject arbitrary Javascript onto
     the page.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • When the servlet acquires locale identifier from the request
    parameter, it does not verify that the locale name is legal.
    Locale name is then used in generating response, thus
    opening a door for malicious locale name to be exploited.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The Servlet now verifies that the locale name is legal. If
    not, it falls back to using a default locale and disregards
    the value of the request parameter.
